Many have noticed that Tina’s right ear is shorter than her left. Many also never notice. I personally don’t know what happened when she was young. I never really asked either. She’s a great dog, and it is not genetic. So it really never worried us.
Luckily judges saw fit to not judge her on her mishap and granted her a championship. I catch myself thinking of creative ways that she must have lost part of her ear. Maybe her mother wanted to keep a piece of her. Maybe her daddy did. Maybe, just maybe….
In an case she’s a loved matriarch k-9. I feel it’s better to be upfront about it than try and hide it.
